Listen Up!: The Way We See It: Youth Speak Out on Education
Vicki Chan, senior at Skyline High school, shows us how two Oakland Public School teachers transfer their knowledge into interactive teaching techniques that literally get their students up and cheering. Mr. Sears stands on a field with his high school physics class ready to launch their rockets, putting on a helmet, goggles and jock strap,. Whoever hits him gets an "A." On the other side of school, clapping and shouting dance instructions to rival Debbie Allen of Fame, Ms. James does a funky dance sequence as her students mirror her perfectly. These two teachers are not only professionals in their given fields but also experts at illustrating the excitement of inspirational teaching.
